Document updated2010-03-27: 
The nearly one-month old male elephant was under treatment after it was brought from Rani in an injured state on February 28. The male calf was born immediately after the mother elephant was hit by the train on February 28 at Rani near Guwahati. The mother elephant in an injured state ventured into the nearby forest but veterinary doctors had to go for mercy killing by administering euthanasia considering her deteriorating state.
